Carlos Delgado Net Worth $65 million
Carlos is one of four children of Carmen Digna Hernández and Carlos ‘Cao’ Delgado. He went to Agustin Stahl Middle School before enrolling at José de Diego High School, from which he matriculated in 1989. During his teenage period, Delgado discovered his passion for baseball, and in the course of the next couple of years, he honed his skills through several local baseball clubs and little leagues. At the age of 16, he turned pro as he was noticed by several MLB team scouts, which led him to sign a contract with the Toronto Blue Jays in 1988. Delgado was named its #4 prospect and joined the franchise’s minor leagues team. The latter engagement helped him to establish himself in the world of baseball and also provided the basis for his subsequently rather impressive net worth.
Carlos’ MLB debut occurred in October 1993 when he began playing as the Blue Jays’ catcher. Soon after, he switched to the position of first baseman, and after only a couple of games also positioned himself among the league’s top sluggers. In the seasons of 1999 and 2000, he was honored with two consecutive Silver Slugger Awards, while in 2000 he was chosen for his first All-Star event too. Also, for being the MLB’s top hitter, Delgado also earned The Sporting News’ Player of the Year and Hank Aaron awards. All these achievements potentially added a significant amount to Carlos’ net worth.
In September 2003, Delgado wrote his name into the history of MLB by becoming just the 15th professional baseball player ever to hit four home runs in a single game, and so was also rewarded with one more Silver Slugger Award, as well as another All-Star appearance. In January 2005, Delgado signed a four-season deal with the Florida Marlins, worth of $52 million. However, due to franchise’s “salary-cutting” activities, he was traded to the New York Mets for the 2006 season. Later that year he was honored with Roberto Clemente Award. Doubtlessly, all these ventures made an impact on Carlos Delgado’s net worth.
After spending four seasons with the Mets, in 2009 he became a free agent and transferred to the Puerto Rico Baseball League. After undergoing a series of hip surgeries in 2010, he signed a contract with Boston Red Sox’s Minor League Baseball team for which he played only five games. In April 2011, after 17 years of professional baseball playing, Carlos Delgado officially retired. It is certain that all these accomplishments have helped him to dramatically increase the size of his wealth.
In 2013, the Toronto Blue Jays appointed Carlos Delgado to the franchise’s Level of Excellence honors.
Apart from all those already mentioned above, in his baseball career, Delgado played at the World Baseball Classic in 2006, as a member of the Puerto Rican national baseball team. He also served as its hitting coach on two occasions, for the 2013 and 2017 World Baseball Classics, where they finished as runner-up both times. Needless to say that these endeavors further boosted Carlos Delgado’s net worth.
When it comes to his personal life, Carlos has been married since 2005 to Betzaida Garcia with whom he welcomed a son, and also an adopted daughter. With his family, Delgado resides in his home town of Aguadilla, Puerto Rico. Besides being a piece activist, he is also regularly involved in several charity organizations.
